Hi Lucy, Thanks, it's our pleasure :)
Absolutely brilliant thank you
Thanks Marie, delighted to hear you had a brilliant time. Hope to see you again soon.
only one issue the cakes were a bit dry, but other than that what can we say but loved it, great afternoon can't wait to come again.
Hi Michelle, Apologies that you found the cake a little dry. But wonderful to hear you still loved your visit to the tea rooms :) We look forward to seeing you on your next visit.
Not our 1st visit - Lovely attentive staff with much quicker service than last summer. A lovely venue for gorgeous afternoon tea for my birthday treat — we couldn’t finish the cakes so were able to take home in a cake box. It’s a great idea to have 25% discount during afternoon tea week too.
Hi Angela, Lovely to hear you enjoyed your afternoon tea with us and the staff looked after you well :) We hope you'll visit again soon.
Great venue .. lovely food .. lovely quaint setting ... definitely highly recommend !
Hi Ally, Thanks for the lovely review and the recommendation :)
Another wonderful vist. Lovely children's afternoon tea menu too. Scones were especially great and were still warm. Many thanks to the excellent waitress who supported a very specific dietary need. We'll certainly be back.
Hi Kathy, Delighted to hear you enjoyed your afternoon tea and that your waitress looked after you well. We hope you'll visit again soon.

great place, quirky and unusual. Food is wonderful.
Hi Samantha, Delighted to hear that you enjoyed your visit to us. We hope you'll visit again soon.
Very good overall experience. Service was moderate, it was busy at the time but staff could have been slightly more attentive to our table. My main gripe was that outside the front of the tearoom there was a huge pile of very smelly rubbish on the pavement.. not sure it belonged to this restaurant but it was unsightly and smelt really bad on arrival and departure.
Hi Lucy, Great to hear your overall experience with us was good. Apologies for the rubbish outside, these bags are usually cleared away earlier in the day (before opening) by local collection companies. I hope this didn't detract from your experience.
Hi Angela, great to hear you had an excellent experience at the tea rooms :) We hope to see you again.
Brilliant food and brilliant service, will definitely be coming back

Jack was really attentive and made sure nothing was too much trouble. The food was delicious, I can highly recommend the lemon drizzle cake!
Thank you so much!
My friends & I had a wonderful time and really loved the Afternoon Tea (with Prosecco!). I love bringing friends visiting Manchester to The Richmond Tearooms-these were local lasses but it was their first visit and they were thrilled with the surroundings, service and, of course, the food & drink! We hope to return soon, thank you very much!
Hi Sue, We're delighted to hear you had a wonderful time on your recent visit to us :) We look forward to seeing you on your next visit.
The Richmond Tea Rooms is a really great venue for meeting friends or family and enjoying tea and cake. I come with my group of friends two or three times a year and it’s a consistently high standard.
Hi Sue, Thanks for your lovely feedback :) Wonderful to hear you regularly visit us and enjoy the tea and cake. We look forward to seeing you on your next visit.
Lovely afternoon tea which our whole party enjoyed!
Thank you so much for your lovely review!
The service was appalling. I booked in advance and it was fairy quiet too. But no one ever came to us to take a drink order or food order or even to order more drinks. Our afternoon tea was dumped infront of us by the waitress however minutes later the same waitress gave the couple next to us their afternoon tea and talked them through what’s been provided and with a smile told them to enjoy. The food was lovely and so was the afternoon tea itself however the really bad service made it an unpleasant experience. Couldn’t even flag anyone down to pay the bill.I won’t be returning.
Hi Farah, We’re sorry to hear you were disappointed with your recent visit to us. We’d like to thank you for your honest opinion as we value all customer feedback and strive to constantly improve. If you would like to give further feedback, please email us at [email protected]
Lovely, quirky setting and very pleasant staff but service was very slow despite providing pre-orders. It was very full for such a small place; I think the staff are struggling to maintain good service at such a large capacity. The food and drink itself was very nice but a little on the expensive side.
Hi Lauren, Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. Great to hear you enjoyed the lovely, quirky setting and very pleasant staff. Apologies that you found the service slow, I will pass these comments along.
